the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin

presidential debates. one of the major issues is it that looming fiscal cliff. president obama challenged mitt romney on his plans for cutting the nation's debt. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real hit romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fell wloe on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> the president's vision is trickle down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> president of the committee for responsible federal budget, director of the fiscal policy program, as well, and joins us now. have you heard anything -- have you heard enough of of a commitment from either side of the aisle that you thought might actually work? >> well, what we didn't hear was enough specifics. so i think the good news is that that debate, the discussion was clearly focused on the deficit and debt. which is the issue th

in a more competitive position. what we see in presidential race after presidential race is whenever anybody in a structurally close race, whenever anybody gets a lead that looks to be pushing the boundary, and obama's lead, when you start getting to four, five, six-point lead in some of these national polls, that's just too high given the divisions in the country, so that's coming down a little bit, and it sets the table again for romney to try to reset impressions of him tonight, really make a strong case on the economy and deal with that 47% video. >> why do you think the situation has not changed in ohio? what's the different metric there? is it because they have people that are more closely related to the car industry and that argument that the obama campaign is at play there? >> the auto industry makes a difference. remember that florida is also an older electorate than ohio. >> but people thought that would slow people that the choice of ryan would scare people. >> he's up in all the polls with people over 65, though. >> right. but senior citizens are the strongest element of romney's
